CHRISTMAS IS COMING.....


There has been a small degree of successful knitting completed this week; mainly taking place yesterday during journeys to and from the coast. Suffice it to say, there was just enough time to complete Mr Snoops' Christmas socks. I really like this simple sock pattern, as the three by one ribbing gives a lovely secure fit. They are a good length too! The younger Miss Snoops has just returned from nine months abroad, full of work stories, wonderful travel tales and hundreds of photos.  She's only back home for one week, before she moves back to London. First on her list of 'to do's' was a walk on the beach! '

Good progress is being made with Evie's Seaside Blanket, although the light is now too poor to get a decent photo. I still haven't got used to remembering that decent shots at this time of year need to be taken during the morning. I really hope that by next weekend it will be complete.


That will just leave a partner for Lucy's 'Mind the Gap' sock...


.... and maybe a quick plain knit sweater for Sophie, if time allows!

Oscar enjoyed his time on the beach yesterday, just as much as I enjoyed captive knitting time in the car!

I am loving the socks for Mr. Snoops, might try a version like that for myself. And the blanket is just gorgeous. I have to remember to get my photos done in the morning too...just a tad annoying. Have a lovely week!

Those socks are great, I will have to give that pattern a try for Mr JK's next pair. Glad you are having some good family time! xx

I love how much colour you use in your knits, always have. That blanket is so very perfect for a seaside blanket.

Lovely pic of Oscar!

Have a great week - kate

I don't understand how we knit all year and yet never have enough time for all the planned Christmas presents. You are certainly doing better than me and I'm the one who is retired.
